Denise Richards is so skinny, she has people worried that she has an eating disorder.
Friends insist that she's always been skinny, has done Pilates for years, and simply has a fast metabolism, but recent photos of her are leaving fans skeptical. "Denise has always been thin. Her whole family is thin. She hasn't changed anything, her workout is still Pilates," a friend said recently. "But she is literally on the go non-stop. She's a single mom to three active girls. She has honestly never felt better."
Richards has said before that her diet is 80% vegetarian, but that she "splurges" on ice cream and pretzels. She has gotten back on her feet since her very public 2006 divorce with the out-of-control Charlie Sheen. She recently guest starred on his FX show Anger Management, and the two have reportedly remained friends despite their dramatic split.
Denise Richards took her daughter Lola to the Radio Disney Music Awards this weekend and addressed the too-skinny accusations head on. "I don't know why lately I've been getting so much flak for it," she said. "I have a very healthy lifestyle and I'm busy. I have a daughter who's almost 2 that I carry all the time. She's just under 30 pounds."
Her ABC Family pilot Twisted was picked up for a full series; it's a murder mystery that centers around a teen "with a troubled past" who becomes the prime suspect. The skinny actress previously guest starred on Blue Mountain State and 30 Rock.
"What bothers me is I have three daughters, and I'm such an advocate for health and fitness...in moderation," Denise Richards said. "We eat ice cream all the time. I had grilled cheese before we got here." Hopefully she is telling the truth and those girls have a positive role model to look up to.
It's probably no accident that she tweeted a photo of a donut today on set!
